The CVMA, California Veterinary medicine association, has recently reported an outbreak of dog flu at 10 cases. This may not seem to be a large number, but this represents the largest case number ever seen in Los Angeles County. Influenza in dogs may present with a cough or pneumonia. pneumonia can be fatal. For dogs that mingle with other dogs, such as dog parks, groomer, agility classes or competitions, I recommend the Influenza vaccine. BE SAFE!!
